Cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (thrombospondin-5) is expressed by human vascular smooth muscle cells

Cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (thrombospondin-5) is expressed by human vascular smooth muscle cells

Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology 21(1): 47-54

Cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP/thrombospondin (TSP)-5) belongs to the thrombospondin gene family and is an extracellular glycoprotein found predominantly in cartilage and tendon. To date, there is limited evidence of COMP/TSP-5 expression outside of the skeletal system. The aim of the present study was to investigate the expression of COMP/TSP-5 in cultured human vascular smooth muscle cells and human arteries.
